Intenese Pulsed Light Treatment

Here at The Private Clinic, we have a fast, effective and safe treatment for Rosacea – Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). IPL is a non-invasive treatment that reduces redness on the face and neck area. It emits light which is absorbed by the affected skin area, destroying the visible blood vessels, which are then reabsorbed into the body following the treatment. IPL is suitable for most skin types and colours, producing effective results for both men and women. If you are on any medication for Rosacea, please mention this to the medical professional during your consultation.

IPL Vascular Laser for rosacea is available in London Harley Street, Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and Princes Risborough (Bucks) which is close to Aylesbury, Oxford, High Wycombe and Beaconsfield.
